I would say that it's time for a new chain. After using for varying periods of time the chain will stretch too far to be used anymore. This is caused by heating during usage. Some things that will cotribute to chain wear out are insufficient bar oil, dull chain or just every day wear. I think if you get anew chain you'll be fine. When I'm tensioning my chains I run the saw at high rpm for a couple of mins. Shut off and grasp chain by mid-point of bar and lift up. I try to get enough space to slip a nickle between bar and bottom of chain. You should check tension often, as over tightening also adds to wear on chain and motor. Hope this helps you. Thanks

    If your new chain didn't help then the only other thing I can think of is that your tensioner gear or screw is stripped out. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Thanks.

My saw blade isnt moving up and down. The jig saw sounds like its running just the blade isnt moving at all..... how do i fix it?


Unplug and Take the case apart. You will probably see that the gear moving the blade collet is stripped. Or, the gear fell out of place. Try putting it back together and see if it works.

I have powermatic pm2000 3hp 10" saw, when I try to turn on push on button , it blows the breaker. I have correct power. I have used this saw for 5 years no problems. I took magnetic switch apart,...


There is a direct short some where.Unplug and turn the blade and listen to the bearings. One of the brushes might be worn down and be jammed against the armature. Five years of use and those brushes might be ready for replacement. If things turn out to be easy fix then changing brushes is not that hard.When you take them out you will see some small holes in the holders.When you put the new brush in the spring will try to push the brush back out,use a small piece of wire in the holes to hold it in.Next install the brushes back where they go.Check the armature out use a hacksaw blade to clean those grooves between the metal strips.Put the armature back in place and button it back together and pull out the keeper wires and your done.

How to change blades


unplug it. remove the bolt in the center of the blade. the blade will slip off then. a wrench for this should have come with your saw. if not, use any properly sized wrench. if needed, pull back the blade guard, put the blade on a old piece of wood, push down on the saw and use the wrench. the wood and your pressure will stop the blade from turning as you loosen the bolt

I am missing the part that brings the guard back when you lower the saw blade


I am assuming that you have some type circular saw?
Most popular saws use a spring to return the guard,with the saw unplugged raise the guard and see if the spring is there(you may need to take off the blade) if it is not there,replace with proper spring.one end of the spring will hook onto the fixed 1/2 of the guard the other to the front of the moving guard(consult manual if possible).once this is done insure that the guard mover freely and is not in the way of the blade.Replace the blade in proper direction check guard again for proper travel,make sure everything has been re-tightened .
If the spring is there check for material build-up or debris that is causing
guard not to move,remove blade clean debris or obstruction,replace blade and check for proper operation.Also visually inspect where the moving guard is attached to the saw for any unusual marks or wear this could be a sign that some type of unsafe situation exists,if this happens refer to a pro to fix or buy new never use a saw without a properly working guard,it took 141 stitches to repair my friends leg.

After reassembly blade will not cut wood, does not maintain suffient tension despite being correctly inserted


It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.

Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.
